obama doing anything like that. >> you have a closing two minutes. >> does that tell you anything when he wipes his lip? >> might have noticed throughout that he is sweating sort of on his upper lip, and he's aware of that and he wants to mop that away before his closing argument. so he wants to make sure that he looks really strong, and it's funny, i think when you do something like that, even on camera, you think people don't notice it as much as they do. >> now we're looking at the good-bye. what does all this good-bye stuff tell you? >> obama looks glad it's over. he looks relieved. he doesn't look victorious. romney looks happy and he looks relieved but you can tell that he feels victorious. >> how do you know that barack obama was relieved it was over? what did his face or body tell you? >> just his posture sort of drooped a little bit. he walked over more quickly not because he wanted to be assertive but because he sort of wanted it to be over with, then he goes over to michelle and again, there's this sort of -- it's very, very subtle but this kind of collapsing body language t
that tell you? >> that he's not feeling positive. >> what's interesting to me is barack obama keeps nodding. almost like yeah, what you're saying is right. obviously he doesn't think that. why is he nodding? what does that mean? >> i actually think what's happening is he's trying to show that he's listening so he's nodding to show that he's listening but he's actually preparing his response. >> what do the voters think of that? >> the voters see it as sheepish and weak. so i think that it doesn't come across well generally to voters, but i actually think it's not an accurate signal of what was happening in his head. >> it's estimated that by repealing -- >> you're saying during the debate there were times when mitt romney was moving very quickly, quick gestures, quick movements. what does that tell you? >> that tells me that he's feeling a little bit powerless. so he's feeling frustrated and powerless to correct what he perceives as a misunderstanding. large animals move slowly and obama and romney are large animals, they should be moving slowly. when a large animal is moving quickly like a
romney was telling all these lies, why on earth was barack obama not correcting them during the debate in front of over 60 million americans? >> and that's what i would ask, i would love to honestly hear newt gingrich's response to this, because as he said in his previous debates, when he backed down a bit, you just cannot debate somebody who is dishonest. you just can't. this is again, quoting newt gingrich. the people say i'm a good debater. i can't debate somebody who won't tell the truth. >> what i'm asking you, why did the president not correct any of these apparent lies? it's the biggest audience of the year. it's a huge debate. it's potentially a game changing moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put
for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put forth your plan. the president chose to put forth his plan last night and that's what spent his time on. but certainly there were unanswered lies. >> newt gingrich, you've heard the allegations. apparently barack obama is facing the same problem you faced, is that mitt romney was just telling loads of lies and you can't do anything about it. >> first of all, it's a great honor to have governor granholm quote me and maybe one of the few times she ever does. but it was a very nice thing for her to do. i think what was intriguing, she actually raised a point that i was talking with my friends about today. i get the sense that obama never watched the debates that romney and i had, particularly in florida. even though both my wife and i have said publicly over the last couple weeks if romney arrives as tough, as aggressive with the clarity and the assertiveness he used in florida, we

own tax plan telling president obama and the american people he would not support a plan that cut taxes on the wealthy and raise taxes on the middle class -- that is mathematically impossible. as i read the actual -- like thing romney said, he basically just said huh-uh because i say so. >> wow. >> stephanie: he said so there's no economist that says the plan adds $5 trillion if i say it won't. [ applause ] >> stephanie: all right. wow. okay. so and as i was always saying i thought axelrod said it right. he said the strategy was effective in the short-term vulnerable in the long term. romney gave a good performance, the problem is none of it was rooted in fact. he told the debate medicare is -- mr. etch-a-sketch said that was wrong. the romney camp had to send someone in the spin room right after the debate to say, well he can't really do that. as for taxed obama appeared to be caught off guard by the statement that his plan wouldn't increase taxes. much of romney's performance was rooted in deception from his very first answer when he tried to disown his tax
when it comes to president obama? >> they haven't changed one bit. they know the truth and can tell a liar when they see one. >> now, what about president obama saying he wants to lower the corporate tax rate on manufacturing to 25%? what does that mean for workers? >> well, whatever it does, ed, we can help create more jobs in this country. what i like what he said about basically, we're going to reward people that put jobs here in america and we're going to make sure the tax is an incentive for people who send american jobs overseas. something that mitt romney has done. he did that at bain and sent jobs overseas. >> what was your response when romney was talking about he's been in business for 25 years, he didn't know anything about incentives for shipping jobs overseas? what was your reaction to that? >> well, again, it's this lie after lie. it's hard to debate somebody when he takes one position on his website, one position during the campaign and gets on television and completely changes it. he knows there's all kinds of incentives to have people move offshore. that's what's wr
from 35% to 25%. >> clearly at that stage mr. obama should have turned to him and said you are not telling the american people the truth. just as he did today in denver when he said he wasn't telling the truth. he should have looked him in the eye and said mitt romney, you are not telling the american people the truth. and then proceed to walk through as clinton would have done the mathematics to prove it. i don't think romney would have been smart enough to figure out how to get out of that hit, but obama ignored that opportunity and i think that's a mistake. joan, you're correct. he will everywhere he goes, he will save the day and correct what he didn't do last night, but 58 million people will not be able to be contacted in time for him to make that correction. >> well, joan, last night romney made another surprising state on his health care plan this time. let's take a look at the latest variation on a theme which is i'm not as bad as i am. let's watch it. >> let's get the governor explain what you would do it obamacare is repealed. how would you replace it? >> actuall

of this. i think valerie jarrett sat next to mrs. obama during the debate tells the president every day, you're the greatest orator in the history of language. i think if you hear that long enough you don't think you have to prepare for the debate and have contempt for anyone who would even dare challenge you for your job. bill: larry sabato, the university of virginia, right, he said last night that it is clear he blew off all of hess practice sessions. >> right. bill: and he said there is evidence to prove that. but it doesn't just stop with folks like al gore. ed schultz was on "the today show.". savannah guthrie asked him specifically what was going on. here he what he said. so many lies coming across the stage and so many inaccuracies, it was hard for the president to comprehend it and decide which one he wanted to attack first. i really believe that because the president's personality is bookish, likes to explain things. will not put something in two or three or four like thing and say well, i'm done with it guthrie says, it sound like you're making excuses. he went on to say romn

presume we're going to see more of the campaigning obama than we saw in that debate, and at the same time he has got to tell a story here that sticks to numbers that are real. i think that if one party and one candidate can really stick to the real tale of where we are economically and how we move forward in this economy that is inhibited by what's happened in the great recession, that honesty might carry the campaign, but i don't think that pie in the sky is going to do it like we saw especially out of romney the other night. >> i agree with that, and i think it would actually play to the president's core message about investment. the reason that we are where we are economically is a competitiveness issue. jobs have gone abroad. this is not a three-year process a ten-year process, it's a 30-year process. the labor share of the pie has been shrinking since the 1970s. so i think that that's good for the president because it plays to his message. we've got to invest in education in infrastructure. countries like china spent four times as much on infrastructure as a percentage of their econo
